Cooking with Coworkers: On Pasta Carbonara

Once again, I’m sharing one fo the recipes from our weekly cooking sessions with the coworkers from my day job! Now, if you know anything about me, you know that I don’t eat eggy things. Mixed in, we’re all good, but if it’s cooked eggs mixed in, eh, I’d rather not. I just don’t like…

I’m going to keep this short & sweet, but have I ever mentioned that I have an AMAZING Mac & Cheese (from scratch) recipe? Because I do. It’s rich, it’s decedent, it’s cheesey, and it’s gobsmackin’ delicious! And if you don’t believe me, then you should just try my very own “THE” Mac & Cheese…

On Quick Bruschetta

Holy smokes! It’s been a crazy couple of weeks, and my apologies for not posting sooner! I’ve been cooking and photographing, and attempting to write up posts and edit my photos, but then I get distracted with packing because we are moving at the end of the month!
